Scrapping OFF the page....(and a Sept. layout)

After being a teacher for 12 years, I am starting a new adventure this year...KINDERGARTEN! For the first time I will be a full-time kindergarten classroom teacher. This comes after 7 years of being a math teacher, 1 year of teaching 3rd grade, 4 years of being a Math Teacher Leader (and teaching pre-algebra to 8th graders). Needless to say, this is a HUGE change for me! I'm excited, nervous, scared, stressed, ... and a million other emotions I can't even describe.

With all of that being said, I've been spending the whole summer getting ready. One of my projects was to create "bins" for each day of the school week. When I'm gathering materials for my lessons, I can place them in the daily bin and be ready to just grab them for the day. I ordered a set of 10 Flat-rate shipping boxes to be delivered to my home (for FREE from UPS). I cut them to open up one side, mod-podged them, and decorated them with some pretty paper (Green at Heart by Basic Grey). Here's the finished product....

I think they turned out pretty good and now I'm all ready to be ORGANIZED!

Here's a layout I created with the AMAZING September Sussies kit...

  1. love this layout! The embellishments are so appropriate for the subject matter. Plus, the background for the word "daddy's" looks just like the earth. Once again, a fabulous layout by you!!
